Tethernet Announces Evolutionary New TetherFilter Anti-Spam and Anti-Virus Appliance|
TetherFilter’s new anti-spam technology attacks spam from a new direction, providing accurate spam filtering, easy deployment and low operating costs.
Belleuve, Washington (PRWEB) May 5, 2004 Tethernet today announced the availability of the TetherFilter 100 anti-spam
and anti-virus appliance. TetherFilter employs an evolved email message-processing engine capable of intercepting spam and
virus messages that violate protocol and formatting standards. This new technique leapfrogs error prone word matching and
statistical modeling technologies. The TetherFilter appliance provides immediate relief to server-clogging spam and is compatible
with all existing Internet email servers.
“TetherFilter offers accurate, easy to deploy spam detection in an appliance form factor,” said Tethernet CEO Frederick Hunter.
“Our goal is to reduce the cost associated with the deployment and management of an effective anti-spam and anti-virus solution.”
Internet email has evolved over several decades and contains many complex and legacy characteristics documented in hundreds of
pages of documentation. Due to this complexity, most spammers and spamming program authors lack the technical expertise to properly
conform to all the Internet protocol and formatting rules. By comparison, commercial email solutions comply with all the Internet
standards. By discriminating on this behavior along with the use of other anti-spam technologies, TetherFilter can effectively
intercept spam before it is presented to users.
The efficient 1U form factor appliance offers quick and simple deployment, requiring no changes to the existing email server.
Initial configuration is done via a front-panel graphic display and keypad. Pre-programmed with rules to effectively catch spam and
viruses, TetherFilter offers near-zero administration with automatic and transparent account creation and management. Through a
web-based interface administrators can customize the anti-spam engine according to business preferences. If desired, the
administrator can provide end-users access to configure their own messaging rules. The appliance provides on-board storage to hold
messages in quarantine keeping the actual email servers free from the burden of spam storage.
Pricing and Availability. The TetherFilter 100 is available immediately for $1949, offering spam and virus protection for up to
250 users with no per-user licensing fees. The product supports a message flow rate of up to 90,000 messages per hour. Support plan
pricing begins at $249 per year.
